Bone The Fish - Most Recent Comments!

Who said you can't coin your own term? What is "Boning the Fish"? It's a moment. A defining moment when you know that your favorite TV Show, Celebrity, Movie Series or Music Group has reached its peak. That instant you know from now on...it's all downhill. Some call it a climax of sorts. We call it "Boning the fish". From that moment on things will simply never be the same.

Michael Jordan - Celebrities
MJ was my favorite player, to such a degree I literally stopped caring about the NBA after he retired--the second time. Let's not pretend he was a saint off the court though. But at the same time, all his off court excesses look tame compared to NBA players and people in general today. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 29, 2011, 7:13 pm

Law - Random Topics
Haha, I knew Soggy would disagree :-) But seriously, there's a direct correlation between the liberal takeover of America in the 60s and the increasing ineffectiveness of the rule of law since, to the point where even non-celebs today get away with anything and everything. What's the point of even having law if it's always going to be circumvented? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 29, 2011, 7:10 pm

Zero Tolerance Policies - Random Topics
Zero tolerance policies wouldn't be needed if everyone just enforced current laws and rules already in existence. But that doesn't even come close to happening today, so you get this zero tolerance thing which it turns out isn't enforced half the time either. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 29, 2011, 7:07 pm

Commercials - Random Topics
Commercials boned for good when Tivo was invented. From that point on, ad execs just assumed everyone had Tivo and would always just skip through the commercials so they literally stopped trying to make them even remotely watchable and started making them as dumb and obscene as possible because again, they just assume nobody notices. Which defeats the whole purpose of even having commercials, go figure. BTW Congress actually did something right for once and passed a law forcing ads to stop being so loud, but after a few weeks of conforming to the new law it seems they're right back to the loudness again. BTW it was based on being as loud as "the loudest point of a show" so if you're watching an action show with, say, one loud explosion or bang then somehow ad makers though it was okay for *all* commercials to be as loud as that. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 29, 2011, 7:05 pm

Thanksgiving - Random Topics
Soggy, my family's not like that either. But if you can't see the reality of how the American nuclear family is being rendered nearly extinct--by design--then I don't know what to tell you. As far back as the 80s half the kids I knew had parents who were divorced, to the point where my high school counselor felt she had to ask me if *mine* were divorced before graduation for seating arrangements or some such. And it's far worse now. Now people can;t even stay in a relationship, period. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 29, 2011, 6:58 pm

Family Guy - TV Shows
Family Guy started out as an irreverent, but sweet, send up to television and pop culture as well as a half-way decent sitcom. Seth MacFarlane was taking the work he did with Cartoon Network and made it more adult oriented. Much to many people's dismay, it was canceled after three seasons. Then, Fox made the mistake of bring it back. After about two or three years, MacFarlane seemed to have lost his comedic sensibilities. Jokes ran on way too long and the show became too aware of itself. The characters have gone to their logical conclusions (Peter went from dim witted dad to full on retard, Meg went from generic teenager girl to whipping girl, etc.) and the writers have used the show to push their political agenda. The latter can be excused from time to time, but not when it becomes a weekly occurrence. Family Guy, to me, has been a big disappointment. It had a lot of potential, but it threw it away to pander to the lowest common denominator. I'm equally disappointed with Seth MacFarlane. I know he can do better than this. -- Submitted By: (dcvianc) on April 29, 2011, 6:47 pm

Kingbk, it's not just talk, it's reality. Everybody under age 30 takes their behavioral cues from American celebrities. You could even say that for everybody over 30 these days as well. Those two are masterful at putting on a public facade, I'll give them that. They may even be more mature than, say, Justin Bieber. But they're about as "regular" as any other celebs.

Woodstock - Random Topics
Agree with Robert and Soggy both. Woodstock has gotten an overinflated reputation over the years from nostalgic older adults, many of whom never even attended the event. As I said in my entry about the 1960s, the 60s did bring us civil rights and the space age, both great developments for our country. At the same time, drug abuse, free love and other negative developments took place around this time as well. I look at Woodstock as the turning point of liberalism in America, not the liberalism of our fore fathers, the kind where you fight for radical change, but a liberalism of immoral behavior and laziness. I think the political climate at the time, with the Vietnam war, Martin Luther King Jr and JFK's murder, put together a perfect storm for extreme liberalism to start taking off and actually make inroads into the United States. The sickening thing is some of these people claimed their behavior in honor of JFK, but JFK was about working hard to make change in your country, not sitting on your butt, getting high, having sex with whoever and living off of a government system. This is when the Democratic party was hijacked, this was when political correctness started planting its roots, this was when the definitions of free will and the American Dream were rewritten. I hate both extreme lefties and extreme righties, but I point to Woodstock when extreme lefties finally made their mark in society, which we still see today. More and more I think 9/11 as the event for extreme righties, but being only 10 years, still not sure. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 29, 2011, 3:54 pm

Both seem like nice, mature, classy young adults. It's darn refreshing after all the talk from people about how young adults today are lazy, immature, etc. Sure, but there are also good people like these two that seem to do the right thing and try to live a good life. After all the Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohans and other crazy celebrities that are consistently in our face, it's good to see someone famous who seems to try to have a normal existence as much as possible. I wish him and Kate all the best. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 29, 2011, 3:09 pm

Yeah, why are he and his wife pushing their preteen daughter to be a ROCK STAR?!

Why couldn't they let their kids be kids? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 29, 2011, 1:15 pm

Prince William of Wales - Celebrities
Soggy, I think he and the new Duchess of Cambridge have had plenty of time to learn from the past generations' mistakes- and more importantly seem to have DONE so! It's also encouraging that he has insisted on independence with as much 'normalcy' as possible in the perpetual fishtank- and has appeared to have won the respect of his father and grandparents for that. They wouldn't have given their blessing for him to marry someone he'd openly lived had they not genuinely respected the two of them!It should be noted that any British royal who marries without the monarch's blessing essentially gets cut off from them. He owns his choices instead of trying to shift the blame when things blow up in his face- and has shown valor in his efforts to help others. Yeah, it's refreshing that he's not an awkward nerd and that she's not a naive waif but simply are two regular folks who are definitely going into this with both eyes wide open. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 29, 2011, 1:10 pm

Las Vegas - Random Topics
No matter what one thinks of its attractions[or lack thereof], one needs to carefully consider that this place gets 4 inches of rain a year [less than my city got this month] and is almost entirely dependent on the very tapped-out Colorado River for its water supply. Yes, the same Colorado River which was once powerful enough to carve out the Grand Canyon now barely makes it to the Gulf of California as a trickle of sludge thanks in no small part to Vegas! So, Soggy, you won't get soggy in Vegas anytime in the foreseeable future and I imagine that no camel would voluntarily move there if they knew the above info. I hope everyone already living there is getting ready to use bottled water for everything from drinking to bathing to washing dishes,etc. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 29, 2011, 12:53 pm

JB is certainly not my cup of tea where his music is concerned. My daughter is kooKoo for him right now. I've got nothing against this guy. He seems alright as a person but At the end of the day, he is the 'Flavor of the Month' and in a few years time his fans will mature out of him people will be saying 'Justin who?' All I can say for his sake is that I hope that he is surrounded by good people/family who will not get swept up in his fame and have his best interests at heart. And I hope he's making good solid investments with all that money he's raking in now. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on April 29, 2011, 12:18 pm

Justin Bieber - Celebrities
Justin Bieber is pretty much a blank slate to me. I know little about him. I've only heard maybe one of his songs and that was in an Onion parody of him! I do however have a few questions. How is it that he "believes his own hype and believes he really is better than everyone else" ? And how do you know he's trying to be "famous just to be famous" and how is he "acting like a total jerkass" ? Like I said, he's more or less a blank slate to me. So, I'm unaware of a lot of his activities and attitudes. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on April 29, 2011, 11:59 am

Dawn Lyn - Celebrities
Now that I've watched episodes of "My Three Sons" there is no possible way she wore a diaper. A diaper would be way too bulky under those short little dresses. It just looks like frilly white underwear. It was also corrected that that story of her pooping on someone was based on some other kid who was a guest star on a show in 1974 long after "My Three Sons" was cancelled. It just goes to show you that you can't believe everything you read.I think someone was just trying to be funny.

Starbucks Coffee - Random Topics
As with so many other companies, you're buying a label more than you are a product. Or, to put a finer point on it, the label IS the product. I used to know plenty of folks in Seattle who frequented Starbucks on a daily basis despite bitching nonstop about how inferior it was to SBC or Tully's or JavaWorks or whomever. Granted, they may have actually liked the burned coffee and indifferent pastries and simply felt it was their duty as trendy hipsters to rag on the place. I suspect, though, that it was largely a matter of wanting to tote the little mermaid label around so they'd be accepted by all the other mermaid-label-toting lemmings in that town. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 29, 2011, 7:49 am

Thanksgiving - Random Topics
Dol, I'm sorry to hear your family is so messed up. Mine, however, is not, and I'd imagine there are as many well-adjusted families like mine in this country - families that are capable of getting together for Thanksgiving or Christmas or Easter without fights breaking out - as there are basket-case families. (And I'm sure you'd agree that many dysfunctional families are the way they are for reasons of their own making.) I also suspect you are exaggerating - for the usual predictable purposes of political advocacy - the degree to which the American family has sunk.

Judge Judy - TV Shows
I'd pay serious bucks to see that confrontation too. My own thoughts about this disgusting hag were just posted on the "Reality TV" page. Frankly, though, I feel no particular sympathy for the dolts who are so eager to appear on her show; they are there, rather than in a real courtroom, solely because they are attention whores like she is, and in that sense they deserve a certain measure of the verbal abuse they receive from her. But much of that abuse really is needless, except perhaps as a means of drawing viewers. Bottom line: Wouldn't it be wonderful to see Sheindlin on the receiving end of the sort of venom she's so happy to spit at others? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 29, 2011, 2:01 am

Reality Television - Random Topics
My least favorite programs of this sort are the "judge" shows. Granted, our legal system is already a joke, but reducing a courtroom case - well, okay, a courtroom arbitration procedure - to a half hour of ha-ha entertainment strikes me as grossly exploitative. No one involved in these shows seems to care much about justice: The plaintiff and defendant - which I'm sure most of you have noted are often the product of Trailer Park America - are there primarily because they want to be on TV; the audience - and heaven knows what sorts of dingdongs are in those audiences - is there to see fireworks; and the judge - who damn well ought to know better - is there to mug and preen and crack jokes. And yes, the Big Kahuna of the genre, "Judge Judy", is the worst offender. Never mind that she is needlessly rude and abrasive; there are plenty of judges NOT on TV who employ that shtick, mostly for reasons having to do with ego gratification. What bothers me most about Judith Sheindlin is that she presents her show as a sort of public service, to educate us about matters of civil law, when in fact all she is doing is exploiting unhappy people in order to get a huge paycheck and all the perks that come with celebrity status. I'd love to see her be coaxed onto a live broadcast, where an articulate critic would (figuratively) jump out of the bushes, ala Stone Phillips, and give her a sound belittling in front of the entire country. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 29, 2011, 1:44 am

Liberalism - Random Topics
I can't speak to Googalslosh's political status, which I don't know, but I can say I agree with his/her comment. (Well, not the "idiot" part.) It IS true that neither conservatism nor liberalism (as we define them today) has all the answers, or is consistently correct (or consistently logical), or has a monopoly on moral probity. Nor is namecalling, or character assassination, a tactic employed by one side only (as WE ALL know). All too many of the criticisms aimed at one ideology can as easily be applied to the other. That's why those of us who are in the center tend to accept the most sensible parts of both ideologies (and of libertarianism too) and discard the rest. Across-the-board liberalism and across-the-board conservatism are both exercises in cluelessness, and an America completely dominated by either one of them would be a nightmarish place. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 29, 2011, 12:55 am

I don't understand why people base their view of Pantera - if and when it boned - on an event (Dime's death) which occurred a full year after the band broke up. Phil basically ended the band in 2003; Dime and Vinnie then formed Damageplan. It's fair to say Damageplan boned when Dime was killed; in fact, the band pretty much melted away after that. But Pantera did not exist at the time of Dime's death, and thus it could not have boned because of that death. Right? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 3:53 pm

I can't count the number of times I've been able, with the help of Snopes, to debunk some piece of hysterical silliness sent to me by a worried or outraged friend or relative. Having to deprogram folks on such a frequent basis is a melancholy task, but at least I have a ready ally when needed. (Of course, some people will express their embarrassment at having been hoodwinked by lashing out at the deprogrammer, so a thick skin helps.) What always amazes me is that the folks who fall the hardest for disinformation-packed forwarded emails are often the ones who seem to have the sharpest senses about the world around them. But, as any con artist or telemarketer can tell you, smart people are easier to fool than dumb people. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 2:23 am

Facebook - Websites
Seven hundred million members. That is just creepy. Sometimes I feel like Kevin McCarthy in Invasion of the Body Snatchers; I look at all my friends and relatives, and I wonder if they, and their seven hundred million fellow travelers, are still human.........or if they've all become Pod People. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 2:01 am

Osama bin Laden - Celebrities
It has been pointed out, and sensibly so, that our foolish Iraq enterprise deprived us of the services in Afghanistan of a good many troops who could have dramatically improved our chances of capturing or killing OBL. Personally, though, I suspect that half a million troops might not have been enough for the job. Sadly, history offers us too many examples of really bad people dying -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 1:41 am

UPS - Random Topics
My dog casts a firm vote for "Boned on Day 1"; he hates the local UPS driver and his truck like nothing else on Earth. The FedEx guy he's okay with, and he's even friendly to visiting Mormons and Jehovah's Witlesses. But that UPS dude is something else altogether... (I'm told other dogs share his aversion, but I'm damned if I can figure it out.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 1:18 am

Wiseguy - TV Shows
I agree that when Wahl left, there was little reason to hang around. And Roger Lococco turning out to be one of the good guys was a crashing disappointment. ("Tell me it ain't true, Buckwheat!") The first two storylines - featuring Ray Sharkey and Kevin Spacey, respectively - were the only ones I found interesting, though I tuned in to the later Garment District story just to see Jerry Lewis and Ron Silver, and a then-unknown Stanley Tucci, chew up the scenery. The Dead Dog Records story was only saved from serious lameness by Tim Curry's performance, and the Mafia succession story at the start of season 3 was just comic-book silly (even with such luminaries as Chazz Palminteri and Michael Chiklis). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 1:09 am

Lawyers - Random Topics
I can't remember; it was about fifteen years ago. I only know it was probably fairly mind, as I told it to a coworker in my bookstore. But it was enough to trigger the lawyer's instincts and confirm the general charmlessness of that species. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 12:46 am

Sitcom - Random Topics
I think I started to notice when a sitcom lasted longer than it should have (mostly the 90's ones), it either turning almost unrealisticaly cartoonish or into a almost full-ledge melodramtic forgeting the comedy part. Cartoonish I don't mind, at least they still trying to keep it funny but dramedy is bad because it seem like they focus too much on the character devolpment too hard, the forget it's a comedy also. I don't see it too much in today's sitcoms though, as they keep a good balance between comedy and some drama. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 27, 2011, 7:09 pm

I say still rocks, but his formula has become tired a bit. Kinda hard to followup great albums like Surfing and Flying though. -- Submitted By: (MyWordIsGospel) on April 27, 2011, 3:58 pm

Cure, The - Music Groups
I say still rocks, since Robert still plays a lot of his older great material with new sounds and just has so many great songs. Unfortunately, I have to agree with the other poster that the band's actual recordings have been in a nosedive since Disentegration. Happens to every great band I guess... -- Submitted By: (MyWordIsGospel) on April 27, 2011, 3:53 pm

Foo Fighters - Music Groups
They definitely still rock. They kinda started to bone a little when There's Nothing Left to Lose came out with an overly poppy sound but luckily they didn't stick with that and aren't afraid to explore new ground as well as rock out hard. Wasting Light might be the band's best complete record ever. -- Submitted By: (MyWordIsGospel) on April 27, 2011, 3:49 pm

Oakland Raiders - Random Topics
The move to L.A. was the boning moment. The team had some decent seasons there (1984 Super Bowl champions) and some great players like Marcus Allen and Bo Jackson, but the team became a fan favorite of L.A.-based gangs and soon the place was too dangerous to play at. This made people stay away from the stadium and home games to be known more for knife fights and violence rather than the games. Sure, Oakland was pretty rough too, but it looked like Pleasentville in comparison. The strange thing is, even after Al Davis moved the team back to Oakland, people in L.A. still act like the Raiders are their home team. I can't tell you how many cars with Raiders bumper stickers I've seen or how sporting goods stores have Raiders gear next to Lakers, Dodgers and Trojans gear. Also, Oakland hasn't been nearly as loyal since the return and who would blame them? -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 27, 2011, 10:24 am

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero (1985) - TV Shows
Travoltron- JUST FINALLY check out GI JOE RESOLUTE.

If you liked GI JOE- get GI JOE Resolute today. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 27, 2011, 7:34 am

Hotels - Random Topics
Robert, I lost my last job for doing exactly that. (Well, I don't recall there being any profanity.) Luckily another hotel - a much nicer one - hired me within a couple of months. (I'm a night auditor so I don't get too many nasty-tempered customers, which is just as well because I don't play a doormat very convincingly.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 27, 2011, 4:10 am

Oakland Raiders - Random Topics
I liked them in the '70s - the Madden-Stabler era. Then The Owner Who Shall Remain Nameless lost his last marble around 1980, and the Raiders have degenerated since then into a no-class franchise. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 27, 2011, 4:02 am

Mobile Phones - Random Topics
I like to be able to check the news and sports scores on my PDA on the way to and from work. And the camera has been nice for capturing Adorable Baby Moments. Ironically, the weakest feature is the phone itself. I don't know if cellphones have boned yet, but cellphone culture has been sliding down a muddy slope since texting began to give way to sexting, and the number of YouTube teenage fight videos began to outnumber funny pet vids. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 27, 2011, 3:45 am

Westboro Baptist Church - Random Topics
I'm sure you authoritarian types will excuse my New Agey verbiage here: The Phelps cult has generated so much bad karma in the last 20+ years that its fate is sure to be extremely gruesome.

Woodstock - Random Topics
Lots of good music by the artists. Lots of silly behavior by the participants. Lots of post-event myth-making by fans. Lots of over-the-top condemnation by BTF members.

New York Dolls - Music Groups
Circus Magazine can kiss my ass. The Dolls rocked as viciously as anybody back in the day. They were punk before punk was even barely understood - that's a good thing, by the way - and the fact that the stodgy mainstream music publications of the era couldn't comprehend them is more a reflection on those publications than it is on the band. Set aside the lurid outfits and androgynous appearance; the first two albums these guys created were groundbreaking and gutsy - and, as it turned out, hugely influential. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 27, 2011, 3:06 am

Indie Music - Random Topics
BrewMaster's translation needs some work. Mass-market artists are not necessarily "better" than obscure artists; they're just more well known (and generally more marketable). There are only two meaningful differences between U2 and, say, Sonic Youth: One, the size of their respective labels, and the exposure they've gotten as a result; and two, U2 is very conventional and formulaic, and doesn't engage in any sort of experimentation, or indeed in anything that challenges the listener, whereas Sonic Youth has been pushing the creative envelope for the last 30 years. If you prefer artists who play it safe and don't color outside the lines, and who are as much products as they are musicians, big-box bands are for you. Some of us, however, are a bit more adventurous. It has nothing to do with being "cool", and everything to do with a disinclination to follow the herd (or the corporations egging on the herd). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 27, 2011, 2:42 am

Super Friends - TV Shows
This was an interesting case because the show started out as complete garbage due to early '70's "sensitivities" and then improved as it went along. It probably did peak with the "Challenge" season (the only season that I actually bothered to purchase), but IIRC the last couple of seasons were pretty good too, even if they were toy commercials. The final season even depicted Batman's origin, which had never been done before onscreen. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 26, 2011, 11:29 pm

France - Random Topics
What France needs to realize is that American tourism is a major part of their economy. It's time for them to decide whether they want us or not. None of us are under any obligation to go there. BTW it's always been a life goal of mine to French kiss a French woman, but it'll have to happen here in America because even I wouldn't travel all the way to France to be insulted 24/7 just for that. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 26, 2011, 5:45 pm

South Park - TV Shows
I like the fact that South Park ripping everyone and actually sticks by it. The douche and turd-sandwich episode is a perfect example of them making fun of all of them (Liberal, Conservatives, Republicans, and Democrats). And they are the only ones that has balls to make fun on $cieneolgy, twice (the Tom Crusie episode and the Return of Chef), while even Family Guy is too afraid to. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 26, 2011, 3:20 pm

I couldn't argee with you more Robert. They can disargee with Sarah Palin and Obama all they want but when they started to picking on children especially minors base on who they related to then that's going too far. BTW, just a moment ago, before I clicked on the comments, one of sponsored ads called Townhall.com had Sarah Palin face on there (along with Mick Rimmey and others I don't know). That's kinda spooky! -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 26, 2011, 2:48 pm

BoneTheFish.com - Websites
Let me throw my hat in the ring for the defense of Bone the Fish! I love Bone the Fish because every one is entitled to their opinion and that's what makes it great. I like the fact we can go on here, talk about movies, TV shows, music, celebrities, etc., state what we honestly think, and have spirited debate with others on the board. In short, that's what this website is, an opinion board. If we all just agreed and it was nothing but the village of the happy people, I, speaking for myself, would be bored stiff. And not everyone just rags on everything. There are plenty of topics with positive feedback as well. I like I can go here with and state how crazy Donald Trump, Woody Allen, and Angelina Jolie are and hear what other people have to say. I like that I can discuss with others on this board if Back the Future boned with Part III or not. I like that some of us disagree on when Van Halen boned: when Sammy joined, when Gary joined, or never. That's what makes this board fun. Sure, for a while the board leaned left and lately it has leaned right, but political biases will always factor into opinions as well. In the end, we're just a bunch of people from all over sharing our opinions with each other. What's wrong with that? -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 26, 2011, 1:28 pm

I think BTF >> JTS then and now. If you think the politics is bad here, you might not have visited JTS enough. People got really vicious if they felt you were of "the wrong party". For example, on the Family Guy page, some people criticized it for bashing religion, among other reasons. Seth's fans accused them of being pro-Bush/religious fanatics/Republicans, so they tore into them without mercy. Here, the disagreements are far more civil. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 26, 2011, 11:17 am

Children are NOT fair game. Period. Leave Palin's kids alone, and leave Obama's kids alone. One guy called Trig Palin (who has down syndrome) "retarded" for no other reason than being the son of Sarah, whom he hates. Trig's only a toddler! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 26, 2011, 10:50 am
